Early Account Termination Fee
I wasn’t able to find any fee schedule, so I’m unsure if there is any early account termination fee or not.
They have offered a bonus of $250 late last year. Because a bigger bonus was so recently offered I wouldn’t recommend doing this, I think it makes more sense to just wait for a $250 bonus to hopefully return.
